It seems as though every tuner and their cousin has gotten their hands on a new generation Porsche Cayenne in order to do some sort of modification to it. Sportec is no different and, alongside theirSPR1 FL in Geneva, the Swiss tuner is also displaying the SP580 package for the SUV. Sportec clearly focused on power updates for both vehicles because, other than a few exterior mods, the engines were the only components given impressive updates.
Starting off with the easiest part of the project, Sportec is offering customers a new set of 22-inch Sportec Mono/7 forged wheels in a dark charcoal finish and an electronic suspension control module that can lower the Cayenne by up to 30 mm. That’s all folks.
More time was taken under the hood as the tuner put in a Motronic system that adds an extra 80 HP and a 74 lbs-ft of torque to the standard 3.6-liter V6 engine producing 300 horsepower at 6,300 rpm and 295 lb.-ft. of torque at 3,000 rpm. For those non-math majors, that takes the Cayenne to 380hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. The package also includes a new free-flow stainless steel exhaust system with quad 90 mm tailpipes.
The Porsche 911 is a car that needs no introduction and is one of the main reasons people are forgiving Porsche for their awkward and uncharacteristic sedan, the Panamera . With these reasons in tow, it always makes us a little nervous to hear that a tuning firm has picked up a 911 to undergo their own transformation of the car. We’ve seen our fair share of tuning disasters, but we must say one of the best types of tuning upgrades for a sports car is when the tuners decided to only bump up the power. Now that is something we can always get on-board with.
So hitting up the 2011 Geneva Motor Show floor was Swiss tuning firm, Sportec , and their package for the Porsche 997 Turbo . The package is called the SPR1 FL and includes an impressive horsepower update for the standard 3.8-liter flat-six engine. Sportec has taken the 500 hp up to a phenomenal 858 hp. No changes were made on the exterior - except for a new rear wing needed to improve the aerodynamic, - but who needs them with that amount of power under the hood, right?
In order to obtain that incredible 378 HP upgrade, Sportec added new hybrid turbochargers with a high performance intercooler, a smooth flow air inlet, a carbon fiber ram air induction system, a new exhaust system, titanium connecting rods, and continuous camshaft phasing. With this power under the hood, the SPR1 FL will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 3 seconds, to 124 mph in under 8 seconds, and to 186 mph after only 10 seconds. Top speed goes up to an incredible 236 mph.
Sportec is ready to present its new masterpiece inspired from the famous Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet . There some stunning changes brought to the new Turbo Cabrio, but the most important is a special sport-exhaust system together with a Sportec turbocharger. The system is combined with high-performance catalysts and increased air flow to the powertrain.
Due to all this combinations the new Sportec SP600 promises a power output of 600hp, with 765Nm of torque and the performance of reaching 100 km/h in no more than 3.3seconds, 10.6 to reach 200km/h and a top speed of 338km/h. With regards to the body kit, there are mostly optional things so you can choose to keep a low profile on the streets.
For those who want to make the difference on the street with their new SP600 there are many choices available like custom 20” rims, side skirts, 3- part rear apron, a front spoiler and a large carbon rear wing. The Sportec collection includes also some other intresting models like the base model Sportec SP530 and the top of the line SP680.
On Volkswagen Golf V GTI Sportec performed an electronic update and they obtained a new car performance optimizing by reprogramming e.c.u. They updated the car to a max performance of 236HP @ 5800 RPM, max Torque of 258 lbs-ft @ 2300 RPM. The car accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 6.3 seconds and has a top sped of 164 mph.
In an effort to provide consumers with a very special kind of mobility, Sportec taps into their collective experience and utilize all types of technology to define new limits of what is possible. In Geneva, Sportec will present the culmination of all their efforts, a world premiere: the Sportec SPR1.
